Deontay Wilder Agrees To Terms For Massive Anthony Joshua Fight

13 June 2018

Both fighters fought in March, with Wilder defeating Luis Ortiz in a thrilling, come-from-behind fight where he was almost finished, while Joshua scored a lackluster win on the scorecards over Joseph Parker.

Wilder now holds the WBC title, with Joshua holding the WBA, IBF and WBO titles, and the fight will see the victor taking all of it home. Deontay wrote to Joshua and said 'Hey, I accept your offer, let's fight in the UK.

"We have agreed to the terms that Eddie has put out to us for a fight in the UK", Wilder was quoted by ESPN as saying.

Wilder posted the above tweet before his manager, Shelly Finkel, confirmed to ESPN that they had finally agreed to the terms set out by Joshua and promoter Eddie Hearn.

"We've got to get to the bottom of it today, but one thing I can tell you is that by the end of this week Deontay Wilder will have a contract in front of him and we'll see if he's real", said Hearn. The $50M offer for him to fight me next in the USA is still available.

If the Wilder fight is next up for Joshua, then the original plan of September 15 is now highly unlikely due to the lack of time involved, as well as the USA television clash with Canelo Alvarez's return from a drug's ban.

'We will wait and see what happens when we get the contract back.

"We've got to get to the bottom of it all today".

'Team Wilder offered Joshua $50million which is exactly what he asked for, and he then turned it down.

Wilder, 32, improved to 40-0 with 39 knockouts when he knocked out previously unbeaten Cuban Luis Ortiz in the 10th round in Brooklyn, New York, on March 3.

"I think Wembley is where Anthony Joshua wants it to take place".

The victor of the first fight will become the undisputed heavyweight champion. October or November are being considered, though it is understood that the latter is more likely, and Cardiff would be the principle option because it is indoors.
